Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In that beautiful home over there,
By the side of the River of Life,
Where the amaranth blooms ever fair,
Is no sorrow, nor sighing, or strife.

Refrain:
Where the amaranth blooms ever fair,
Ever fair,
Is no sorrow, nor sighing, nor strife.
’Tis a beautiful place over there,
Over there,
Over there, over there.

2 The now glorified saints over there,
They once suffered and toiled here below;
Now exalted, Christ’s triumph they share,
Sin, nor anguish, nor death ever know. [Refrain]

3 They have gone to their home over there,
Where the city is glorious and bright,
And the crowns of the victor they wear,
And our God and the Lamb are the light. [Refrain]
